My name is Rodney Stereo and I’m the Founder and Brand Director of Stereo Champions. I’m originally from Trenton, NJ and I’m a graduate of Howard University in Washington, D.C. where I now reside. I’ve had the great chance to work with many cool global brands including Nike, Coca Cola, Old Spice, Audi, Volkswagen, and Levi’s to name a few. While working on those brands I’ve always noticed that there was something that resonated with me with each one of them as I built their worlds digitally for several agencies. While doing so, I constantly did research, visited blogs, and read through press releases and promotional outlets daily for inspiration.
One thing I noticed as I continued to read news from several of these media outlets, was there were none that spoke directly to me and highlighted all of the things that directly affected my world. This sparked the idea to build the vision of Stereo Champions, a media company communicating deliberately with an original sound on the best music and live events. Our goal is to produce original content from a Champion’s perspective, so feel free to big up your fellow readers and writers. Sure we all like to argue about who’s the top 5 rappers dead or alive, be the first to a meet and greet, have the best aux chord game, and let the world know how we feel about the shit we consume including music, lingo, style, culture, etc. I’ve taken the charge, along with my amazing team, to ensure that Stereo Champions will showcase and share these things from an honest and bold perspective.
I hope that you join us on this journey and enjoy what we’ll be producing over the years to come. So far we’ve been able to do some incredible things, meet extraordinary people, and grow into a media company I had never imagined before. I leave you all with this quote which definitely gave me the fire to jump out there and get it. Also, feel free to reach out to me via Twitter and Instagram, I’d love to hear your feedback and/or what you’d like us to do better. Thanks!
